Wild Things

Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He didn’t care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.

Dee Brown Waived: I Can’t Get Behind That

News outta the desert: Dee Brown is no longer a Phoenix Sun.

Maybe because I grew up watching him play at Illinois, I like him more than he deserves, but Brown should be on an NBA roster.  I can think of at least a few teams (Golden State, Boston, Portland) who could use a backup or third string PG, something that Dee can readily be.

I just can’t get behind Brown getting cut.
